Stanton LVP Maintenance and Care
Your floor is ready for use when you buy it. After installation
on your floor may need a thorough cleaning. Don’t use any
additional protective products and follow these simple steps:
• Clean your floor regularly.
• Start by removing all dirt and dust with a soft broom or a vacuum
cleaner with the correct hard surface attachment - never a rotating
brush, floor scrubbers, jet mops, buffers or similar products.
• Then, clean with water and a neutral and appropriate cleaning
agent. Do not use aggressive cleaning products, soap, abrasive
cleaners or cleaning agents that contain wax or oil. We recommend
using a well-rung wet mop or a cloth.
• The use of residential steam mops on this product is allowed. Use at
lowest power with a suitable soft pad, and do not hold a steam mop
on one spot for an extended period of time (longer than
5 minutes). Refer to the steam mop’s manufacturer instructions for
• After washing allow your floor the time to dry.
• Remove stains as soon as possible, with a well-wrung, slightly damp
cloth. Worn-in stains are difficult to remove.
• For chocolate, grease, juice and wine stains, use lukewarm water
and a non-abrasive cleaner.
• Nail polish, tar, markers, crayon, lipstick, ink and cigarette burns can
be removed using nail polish remover or denatured alcohol.
• For candle wax and chewing gum, scrape carefully with a blunt
• Pet stains (including urine, feces and vomit from domestic cats or
dogs) need to be cleaned within 24 hours.
• Avoid bringing dirt, sand, grit and substances such as oil or asphalt
indoors by placing non-rubber backed carpets and doormats at all
• Do not use rubber-backed mats as long-lasting contact with the
rubber can cause permanent stains.
• Do not allow cigarettes, matches or other very hot items to get in
contact with the floor as this may cause permanent damage.
• Do not drag or slide heavy objects across the floor. When moving
appliances or heavy furniture it is always wise to lay a plywood
panel, or similar, on your floor and “walk” the item across it. This
protects your floor from scuffing, gouging and tears.
• Apply appropriate protection to the legs of the furniture. Do not use
colored floor protectors.
• Apply freely rotating, non-rubber wheels to chairs with castors and/
or use protective matting.
• Please bear in mind that pets with sharp nails can leave deep
scratches on the floor.
